Grand Opening Held For Pikeville Medical Center Expansion

Bringing new and improved healthcare to Eastern Kentucky, officials with Pikeville Medical Center held a grand opening ceremony for their newest addition on Thursday.

The new 11-story clinic is connected to a new 10-story parking garage holding more than 1,000 vehicles.

The clinic is attached to every floor in the hospital's May Tower. Officials say this creates easy access between inpatient and outpatient areas.

"The Clinic and parking garage expansion is one of the most exciting projects we've taken on over the years," says Walter May, President and CEO.

The expansion, possible through a USDA loan, includes physician offices, exam rooms, and operating rooms.
